Poem: Keeper of Lost Things

I have a passion for lost things
Gathering up scraps of the past
Torn up love letters tear stained
With ink running in black streaks
Stitched together like a corpse
That I’m seeking to resurrect 
As I reread each pain filled line
Re-adjudicating the destruction 
That I have wrought across years
Of broken relationships and hearts
Look upon my works ye mighty
And contribute to my despair

  1. Nicely done! I like “re-adjudicating the destruction,” like trying to squeeze every last drop of misery out of it; and always on the lookout to add to the collection. Such a dark poem.
